Hi, I am a passionate, detail-oriented visual designer, photographer, and illustrator with a multi-faceted creative background in advertising, holistic health and wellness, magazine and book publishing, retail luxury brands, and E-Commerce. I have built and designed advertising campaigns, and have experience in project management. I also have a background in writing for various online and print publications. I have over twelve years of experience working in the design industry with in-house design positions as well as my own freelance design business.
I am a visual storyteller, and my success comes from combining powerful words and images to create sharp, clear messages. My strong communication skills and extensive design experience give me the ability to transform client objectives into compelling and effective solutions. I believe in constantly evolving in your skills and studying different creative mediums, which in turn develop your design aesthetic. Truly successful design comes from being a good listener, a great interpreter, dedication, hard work, and compassion.
I have had proven success in both small agency and large corporate environments; working independently or within a team. I understand there is more to design than what happens on the computer, its a process of visual communication. My skills and experience in both the design and personal aspects of the work make me a unique and effective partner in any design process.
I am a graduate from the Academy of Art University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Graphic Design and I am pursuing a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Creative Business Leadership from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I also have an academic background in Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing, Visual Communication and Fashion Design from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
I love the versatility that art and design has, and love all kinds of mediums from drawing, painting, design, photography, fashion design to illustration. My personal artwork has themes of wellness, personal empowerment and nature. My other interests are in animal and nature conservation, travel, learning, yoga, and enjoying life. My mission is to enhance the beauty, inspire wonder, and to tell a visual story in everything that I create.
